Jim Ferguson is a poet and prose-writer based in Glasgow. Publications include the novel ‘Punk Fiddle’, poetry pamphlets ‘My Bonnie Scotland’ and ‘Songs to Drown a Million Souls’: and diary-style musings on the Scottish independence referendum campaign of 2014 entitled ‘The Pine-Box-Jig Involves no Dancing’. A review in 'Northwords' of his poetry cd ‘More than Quirky’ states: ‘Ferguson’s strong Glaswegian accent is striking and his voice is forcefully expressive, most particularly when reading words and phrases from the Glaswegian dialect… In all poems there is a conviction in the reading, at times both poignant and haunting.’ He works as a Creative Writing Tutor at Glasgow Kelvin College (Easterhouse Campus).
